The art of crochet is just that, an art. For me, it's easier than knitting because there is just one hook as opposed to two knitting needles. But, the basic theme is the idea of stringing a bunch of knots together and looping yarn over the hook and pulling it through another loop to make a knot that ends up being a pretty pattern.
The toughest thing for beginners to understand (or do) is how to hold the needle and how tight to pull the yarn. But, needless to say, after some practice it becomes second nature. You will also get fast at it too. I know that I am pretty fast and that's not always a good thing when I am trying to make a video to show you how to do it and then I go to fast for you to really see what I am doing. That is one of the things I will be working on; slowing my fingers down when I am doing a video.
